Brother Derek gets a rest
Brother Derek, the Santa Anita Derby winner who finished fourth in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, is being given a month-long break and will resume racing during the Del Mar meeting this summer, trainer Dan Hendricks said on Sunday. The top 3-year-old in California this year, Brother Derek passed a battery of physical tests last week, including a nuclear scan, Hendricks said.
